3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask with espresso beans at pizza port san clemente. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is lots of roast coffee and caramel. Flavor is more strong coffee with a strong hop bitterness and a hint of chocolate. Palate is silky with pretty much no carbonation.

Nice roasted, smokey malt flavors in this one. The finish is slightly dry and bitter from the hops. Black with a nice head and smooth from the nitrogen pour. A very tasty brew.

Tap @ brewery. Dark, ruby/walnut body with a light tan head. Webby lace with splotches. Yeast/bread on the aroma, dark malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate. Mouth is medium with tons of super-soft carbonation (like a nitro), lightly dry. Flavor is plastic, candy, sugar, dust, lightly roasty, touch sour dough in the finish, touch bitter, coffee, light alcohol. Interesting amalgamation of flavors, but I drank it and even enjoyed it. Very unique. Great mouth.
